BY THE
Canadian
Pacifi(
2  Route
HOSE who visit California in summer or spend
their winters in that sunny land, should carefully note when purchasing their tickets that
one portion reads via Canadian Pacific or Soo-
Pacific lines through the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The trip costs no more than by any other
of the northern routes, and from start to finish
is full of interest. It is a wonderful change from
the land of palm to the land of pine, coupled
with the grandest mountain scenery in the world.
The connection between San Francisco and
Vancouver or Victoria, B. C, is easily made via
the picturesque Shasta Route. From San Francisco, the valley of the Sacramento, with its fine
fruit farms, is followed as far as Reading, and the line then
climbs the spurs of the Siskiyou Mountains. Above them
towers Mount Shasta, which lifts its triple peak far above
the clouds.    Splendid views
of this mighty monarch
are obtained from the train,
and contrast well with the
lovely scenery of the valley of
the Rogue River, which is
crossed soon after the State of
Oregon has been reached.
Salem, the capital, is built
on the Williamette River,
and is most picturesquely
situated, shut in on the west
by a semicircle of fir-cov-
ered hills, while it commands a fine view of the
Cascade Mountains on the
east. At Portland a view of
that beautiful "rose city" and
the valley of the Columbia may be enjoyed. From Portland
to Seattle passengers are in sight of mountain ranges on both sides
of the track. Standing out prominently are Mount St. Helen,
Mount Rainier and  Mount Baker.
STREET SCENE IN SEATTLE
From Seattle passengers may go by rail to Mission Junction to
join the Canadian Pacific Railway main line; many, however, will
prefer the sail through Puget Sound by the justly celebrated
Canadian Pacific Railway steamships to Victoria, B. C, and to
Vancouver across the Gulf of Georgia, one of the most lovely
stretches of sheltered water in the world.
"PRINCESS   CHARLOTTE
SEATTLE,   VICTORIA,   VANCOUVER   SERVICE
From Vancouver by the Canadian Pacific Railway transcontinental line travellers for Eastern Canada or the Eastern United
States can, if they so please, go straight through to Montreal, Toronto
or Niagara Falls, and from there proceed to their destinations.
Passengers for the Middle West or for parts of the United States
west of Detroit, will leave the Canadian Pacific Railway main line
at Moose Jaw and travel via the Soo-Pacific to Minneapolis or St.
Paul. This line crosses the International boundary at Portal, in
North Dakota, and is most convenient for its quick connections
between any of the great centres of the Western United States.
From Moose Jaw the journey to Minneapolis or St. Paul takes
about twenty-four hours, and to Chicago forty hours.
Besides these main routes there are many possible variations, each
with its own attractions and advantages. At Sicamous a side-trip to the
Okanagan district may be enjoyed. At Revelstoke a divergence
by Canadian Pacific Railway steamboat down Arrow Lakes to the
Kootenay region, and thence by the Crowsnest Pass to the main
line at Medicine Hat, would take the traveller through some of
the richest mining centres of the world, the names of which—Trail,
Rossland, Fernie, Lethbridge, have become household words. At
Pincher Creek the ranching country is reached, and here is also
much to observe in the immense system of irrigation which has
been constructed.
As the train runs through Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba,
the traveller sees, without leaving his car," undoubted proofs of the
marvellous fertility of the great Canadian West.
After leaving Winnipeg, the Chicago of Canada, and its splendid
hotel, the Royal Alexandria, there is a further choice between an all-
rail and a trip through the Great LyJces. At Fort William, at the
head of Lake Superior, connection is made with the splendid
steamships of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and the tourist, if he

has already seen the wild, rugged scenery of the north shore of the lake,
may spend two pleasant days on the water sailing to Owen Sound,
from which Montreal, Toronto, Detroit and Buffalo are reached easily.
Varied as are these routes, equally varied are their points of interest.
Victoria is the city of beautiful homes, and possesses a magnificent
hotel, the Empress, which is one of the Canadian Pacific Railway's
Hotel System. Vancouver, on the other hand, is a commercial city
and the Pacific port of the Dominion, and the Canadian Pacific Hotel
Vancouver will be found most
comfortable. From here sail
the Canadian Pacific Railway's
Empress fleet for the Orient
and the ships of the Canadian-Australian line for Australia and New Zealand, while
this Company has also a line of
British Columbia coast steamers running regularly to Skagway. Vancouver is one of the
principal centres of the lumber
and salmon-curing industries,

Canadian pacific railway is famous the world over. M

For over 500 miles after leaving the Coast the Canadian Pacific
Railway runs through the mountains, and the scenery in its sublimity surpasses all description. Above the track rise ranges 11,000
feet high, and the achievements of man are dwarfed into insignificance by the mighty works of Nature. In the valleys are deep rivers,
and on the slopes are forests with trees in girth and height far greater
than any that grow in eastern parts. Above, again, the crags stand forth
gaunt and bare, until they reach the snow line and receive a covering that year in, year out, clothes them with a glistening mantle.
MOUNT   STEPHEN   HOUSE,   FIELD,   B. C       THE   GATEWAY  TO   THE
FAR-FAMED  YOHO   VALLEY
At Emerald Lake, seven miles from Field, the Canadian Pacific
Railway has erected yet another chalet where visitors usually tarry
on their way to the Yoho Valley. It is a convenient resting place
and the lake has attractions of its own. As its name implies, its
waters are deep green, and they are veined here and there with red
from the earth carried down by the torrents that pour into it. It is
closed in at one end by a great wall of rock, sheer and regular.   Above

CANADIAN  PACIFIC RAILWAY HOTEL SYSTEM
Perhaps the grandest views, in a land where all is magnificent,
may be obtained at Glacier, Field, Lake Louise and Banff, where
the Canadian Pacific Railway has made every arrangement for the
convenience of passengers and stop-over privileges are granted.
At Glacier the Company has built an excellent hotel right under
the shadow of Mount Sir Donald, as it towers for nearly 11,000 feet
above sea level. Within forty-five minutes' easy walk of the hotel
is one of the famous glaciers of the world, and the traveller can
examine this wonderful phenomenon with the utmost comfort and
safety. For this and other excursions Swiss guides are provided
by the Canadian Pacific Railway here, at Field, and at Lake Louise
reached from Laggan.
At Field, too, there is another hotel owned by the Canadian
Pacific Railway and named after Mount Stephen, that rises 10,450
feet close by. It is the portal to the Yoho Valley, one of the most
beautiful mountain valleys in the world.
EMERALD    LAKE.  CHALET,    AMID
BEAUriFUL  SURROUNDINGS
EMERALD   LAKE   AND
MOUNT  BURGESS appear the peaks, clad everlastingly in snow, and in the cleft between
two of them a magnificent glacier thrusts its tongue. At other parts
thick woods rise from the very edge of the water, and the angler can
build his camp, secure from all intruders, amid splendid straight-
stemmed spruce. Emerald Lake is full of fine, gamey trout, and
many a creel has been filled to the brim on its waters.
LAKE LOUISE,  NATURE S  LOVELIEST  HANDIWORK
. A few miles east the Great Divide of the Canadian Rockies is
crossed and a curious phenomenon is seen. A brook at the parting
of the slope divides its stream to east and west. The eastern rivulet
finds its way into the Bow River, and is carried on until it finally
adds its quota to the icy tide of Hudson's Bay, while the western

branch runs into the Columbia River, and is by it taken with many
wanderings, through the State of Washington, until it flows into
the Pacific Ocean and meets waters heated by all the warmth of
the equatorial sun.
Laggan is next reached, near which are the Lakes in the Clouds,
three tarns of peerless beauty, that preserve in all the wildness of
the scene the most perfect peace and grace. At the largest of them,
Lake Louise, the Canadian Pacific Railway has another hotel,
beautifully situated in the midst of the spruce woods that grow to
the water's edge.
From its windows there is a splendid view of the lake and the
great glaciers of Mount Victoria, framed, as it were, in the mountains all around it. From it, too, easy trails lead to Lake Agnes,
Mirror Lake, the other two Lakes in the Clouds that lie like lovely
jewels on the bosom of the
crags. Within reach of
pleasant excursions are also
the Valley of the Ten Peaks
and Paradise Valley, where
some of the most characteristic beauties of the mountains
are displayed by the imposing
line of heights that dominate
the former, and the deep cleft
of the latter, over which
Mount Temple broods.
Days may be spent at Banff
in the enjoyment of the marvellous views afforded by the valleys of the Bow and the Spray, and the
Canadian Rocky Mountains National Park, for it includes scenery
of the most varied character, in which every kind of mountain,
deep-set lake, and foaming river combine to delight the eye and
bring rest to the mind. A large hotel awaits visitors and excellent
driving roads and bridle-paths give glimpses of the scenery from
varied but always charming points of view. Moreover, there are
ample facilities for boating on the Bow River and beautiful lakes
within easy distance of the hotel. The temperature is delightful
for outdoor life, for the cool, pure air of the mountains invigorates
everybody, and when the inhabitants of Chicago, New York and
Boston are suffering with the thermometer at ninety-five degrees,
it is rarely more than seventy-five degrees at Banff.
Beyond the mountains come the plains, and the Canadian Pacific
Railway runs rapidly through the finest ranching district in the
world and the great prairie grain-growing district, to which immigrants by the thousand are attracted, not only from Europe, but
also from the United States. The greatness of the resources of
Canada will be comprehended by a journey through Alberta, Sas-

katchewan and Manitoba, and it will be still more clearly brought
home to the traveller by the sight of the Canadian Pacific Railway
elevators at Fort William and Port Arthur on Lake Superior.
The great attractions of this route and the comfort with which
the transcontinental journey may be made has led to a large increase
in the numbers carried by the Canadian Pacific Railway. To
meet this augmented demand the Company has enlarged
its transcontinental train service considerably. There are
two trains each day between Montreal and Vancouver. The
train leaving Montreal at 10.10 a.m. is the Imperial Limited, while
the train leaving at 10.30 p. m. is the Pacific Express, connections
being made at Winnipeg by passengers from Toronto. Eastbound
from Vancouver there are two trains daily the Imperial Limited
and the Atlantic Express.
